Driving Innovation for Tomorrow’s Commerce

Engineers and computer scientists are more than just the creators and inventors of products. They shepherd an entire project from idea to market. They are increasingly called upon to couple innovation with communication, leadership and decision-making.

Business and Product Development

Engineering and computer science students can work with students from business and marketing to tackle difficult problems in industry, community and society through developing new products, services and businesses. Students can work with the UA Office of Technology Transfer to research and study the market potential of intellectual property created at the University, or work on start-up companies through the Alabama Innovation and Mentoring of Entrepreneurs center, or AIME, a technology incubator at UA. Students can also use resources at the University to help get ideas into a start-up company.

Students in the College of Engineering also have the option to work alongside business students in a course where student teams working on product development shape the curriculum, deliver the content and share in the results.
